Is There Really a Foreign Language Premium in Canada?: Evaluating the Foreign Language Effect...

This economics paper finds a 2.84% wage penalty for Canadians who know a foreign language and an even greater penalty for Canadians who use these languages at work. I proceed to decompose the results by language and occupation to find varying results. I also attempt to use a religion proxy to see whether it changes a foreign language's wage effects with mixed results.
